3 things challenge, 14th Jan 2019

Todays prompts: automaton, magical, twilight

****

In the twilight hour
I sit
Thinking and pondering
What is life all about?
How do I make it count
All of a sudden
I am overtaken
By magical thinking
And I sit
Wonder, is this real?
I wonder, how I should feel?
As the hours tick by
Slowly I try
To reflect on my life
But that magical thinking
Clouds my vision
Makes me feel
So surreal
So eventually I quit
Lie down
And try to sleep
And dream, hopefully

********Well, the new year, we are two weeks in already. How do I feel? Reflective is definitely a word I’d use!

I have been thinking a lot about the goals I made at the start of the year. Am I living them? Am I achieving them? I am, for the most part.

I’ve been still reflecting a lot about last year, and what I achieved then. I did achieve a lot! Lost weight, got accepted to a college course, started volunteering more, progressed in therapy, to name a few.

I am overall very happy so far with how things are going this year though. Now if I can just get my sleep pattern reset, and if we can just go deeper in therapy, that will be great and I will count that as more progress!

Reflection is good IMO! Its good to take stock, look at what your doing, and taylor that to your needs!

#JusJoJan prompt January 10th 2019

Todays prompt for JusJoJan is a cool one! And I am participating once again in this wonderful challenge!

The prompt word for today is, sunrise!

And I thought I’d write a little poem about it! So here goes!

A ray of Light
Let it in
Watch the sun
As it rises
Above the clouds
Making us feel
Happy and cheerful
A bright ray
A warm glow
The sun shines upon us
As we go!

Memento? Whats that? I am sad to say I dont know what it means! I am too damn lazy to look it up, maybe I’ll ask alexa, hang on, hold that thought, I’ll go do that and see if the A lady knows what memento means!

Well, she told me that memento is a reminder of past events! Really? It is?

Ok then! Here is my memento!

Tonight, as I am sitting here drinking my cinamon tea, I am reminded of a trip I took to the USA some years ago, to visit my partner, remembering this trip brings me joy, but also leaves me sad, as now my partner is in a residential psych facility and I havent seen her in four years, I remember us sitting together, drinking hot tea, chatting up a storm, talking into the early hours of the morning. Such happy times they were!

Well guys, thats my JusJoJan for today!

My dog is a master of stealing the covers! Yes he is!

I felt sorry for him last night. I thought he was cold. His little nose was freezing. So I let him on my bed! I covered him with my blankets, and we tried to go to sleep, the two of us.

But within minutes he stole all the covers! I was the one who was cold then! 😀

He’s such a cutie! I love his cute ways!

I tolerated it for about an hour. Then I hunted him down off the bed! I’m sorry, but I needed sleep!

He’s a master of stealing covers but also a master of being cute!

Ya gotta love him!

😀
